in this theater when asked about this subject that as clearly and as cleanly as mr. romney won the the debate, it still seems politically important that mr. romney did not win the debate in a way that produced a single sound bite. i mean, yeah, 60 million people watched romney win the debate overall, but for the 240 or so million american who is did not watch the debate who might have been curious about how it went, there was no single sound bite to take away from the debate to remember and repeat as the reason that mr. romney won. and so i sat at this event that even though romney won that night, won on debate night, there wasn't any day two story that could explain to people why it was that he won. i said, really, thinking about it, the only line, the single line that survived the debate, the only line that i think anybody can remember from the debate, i said this to a room of 2,000 people. there's one line that everybody can remember from that debate and that was -- and everybody in that theater simultaneously said back to me "big bird." 2,000 people all at once "big bird." the morning aft

than has mr. romney. the pattern since mr. romney won the nomination has been he was able to compete on the issue of the economy, but on a host of other issues and a host of personal characteristics, the president was ahead. and that has helped him stay ahead in the horse race polls. what you've seen since the first debate obviously is in some plac places, in colorado, wisconsin, the president's margin has come town a bit. in virginia, it stayed the same. the reason why virginia is so much better for the president is the economy is so much better in virginia than it is in much of the rest of the country. the unemployment rate in virginia is less than 6%. so it's tougher for mr. romney to come into virginia and say things aren't good and it's barack obama's fault when in fact things in virginia are pretty good. >> also here president obama maintains significant leads over mr. romney on the issue of trust and honesty. governor romney is behind on that in colorado and wisconsin and hits just 46% in virginia. and based on those numbers when you've looked at that, is that the key for the

of ways. but yourhoughts on mr. romney's approach to put foreign policy on the agenda. >> i think he is looking for a way to distinguish himself from president obama's for policy. since he does not have a significant difference in the actual policy prescription that he is calling for, what he is resorting to is simply saying president obama is not tough enough. his rhetoric is not firm enough. he is leading from behind instead of in front. but when pressed on what would you actually do, he is giving out policies that are really not that different from those of president obama. the language is a little bit different. the only significant difference, on iran, we can expect that both president obama and candidate romney will be focusing a great deal on iran as a threat. their language will be very similar. but the red line they are imposing is very different. for president obama, the red line all along has been the question of preventing iran from obtaining, from getting in a clear weapon. but everybody agrees the u.s., all 16 u.s. intelligence agencies, most of the israeli intelligence
